In Decision Support Objects (DSO), certain objects can contain a series of user-defined commands that are automatically executed on the client when you access the object. These commands can include expressions written in Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) that define calculated members, named sets, library references, and other commands.
The objects that implement the Command interface, CubeCommand, DBCommand, and RoleCommand, have a ClassType property value of clsCubeCommand, clsDatabaseCommand, or clsRoleCommand respectively. The Command interface provides collections, methods, and properties to manipulate these objects.
The Command interface contains the following collection.
